Push My Luck - The Chainsmokers

The Experience: Push my luck with you... Acknowledging the fact you hope for more sets you up for disappointment. But it also sets you up for happiness...
The Vibe: Hope. Yearning. Wonder.
The Topic: Romance.
The Value: Hope.
The Tension: Does another night feel alright to you? (Scared to ask commit and ask for commitment because you fear rejection) VS. Should I have known that you would take hold and never let go? (What you truly yearn for is everything and forever).

Music video: The Chainsmokers play in the dark. She dances in the dark. But the afterimages actually follow the movements they will make, not the movements they've already made. Those trails of light are hope for the future, not nostalgia for the past.

The Meaning of Push My Luck: The Chainsmokers explore the fears and hopes of a relationship. The way they go about it is tentative, partial, and so very modern: I know that you like your space with your one roommate and is it ok if I stay and does another night feel alright to you. But what they truly hope for is a very anti-modern forever: never let go. The irony is that when you give and ask for love piecemeal, little by little instead of waiting to give and receive it all at once, you risk losing and wasting the pieces of love you gave away too early, before you both commit to never letting go.

Ask yourself: Does anyone ever actually want to settle for a just little piece of love?

Album: World War Joy - 2019

LYRICS:

Broad street
Yeah, we met over sake
Might have started off rocky
And ruined our first date

But last night
When you finally called me
I ran straight through the lobby
I couldn't keep you waiting

And I know and I know and I know and I know
That you like your space with your one roommate
Do you mind if I see you tomorrow?

Yeah I know yeah I know yeah I know yea I know
That you work Sundays for minimum wage
Should I have known that you would take hold and never let go?
Never let go

I think I might push my luck with you
Does another night feel alright to you?
If I ask right now would you think it through?

Hey
I think I might push my luck with you
Did you say that you got nothing else to do?
Is it ok if I stay 'cause I'm dying to?
Yeah I'm dying to

Restless
Tangled up in your mattress
In the morning we'll get dressed
The one that got away

You caught me
Yeah I'm right where you want me
Every inch of my body
Won't let this go to waste

And I know and I know and I know and I know
That you like your space with your one roommate
Should I have known that you would take hold and never let go?
Never let go

I think I might push my luck with you
Does another night feel alright to you?
If I ask right now would you think it through?

Hey
I think I might push my luck with you
Did you say that you got nothing else to do?
Is it ok if I stay 'cause I'm dying to?
Yea I'm dying to

I think I might push my luck with you
Does another night feel alright to you?
If I ask right now would you think it through?

Hey
I think I might push my luck with you
Did you say that you got nothing else to do?
Is it ok if I stay 'cause I'm dying to?
Yeah I'm dying to
